I thought I would give it a while before I added a new post to see what the effects of the retreat were a few days after returning.
I have felt, and continue to feel really calm. My mind is still and I am very lucid. My thoughts have really subsided and I find that I am able to bring mindfulness into some moments that I previously have found difficult.
I have effectively taken another step on my personal journey with the realisation that I need to practice humility. I have the content that I created while away to work on and I am looking forward to fleshing out the presentation and putting the framework in place for the course.
It is probably worth posting where I am at some point later on this month to see what the residual effects are then.
